Xula is a Latinx and Black-owned CBD brand born in Mexico City.
Xula was founded out of our mutual respect for the cannabis plant. As women who spend our time in the U.S. and Mexico, we recognized that both spaces lack representations of women and products specifically for our bodies. Our brand doubles as a platform to celebrate and amplify both cultures
“It is evident that we live in a world that promotes and rewards stress filled lifestyles and I truly believe that CBD as well as herbs can act as a countering force to this-helping us find more inner balance.”
Karina’s professional background consists in theoretical and practical knowledge of the human experience and the use of substances and practices to help unlock this potential. Cannabis has become her focal point in recent years and it is through this that xula was born.
As a queer woman, she sees the importance of living comfortably in our own skin and envisions CBD and herbs as a way to seek the inner balance we crave to live in this hectic and stressed out society.
